13:30 – Bubble Dubi

Bubble Dubi had shaped with promise on a few occasions and he finally put it all together to get off the mark at Stratford last month, justifying support in the process. Bubble Dubi again impressed with how he travelled in a strongly-run race at Stratford, and there was more of an end product than previously as he kept on to score by three lengths. He has a 5 lb higher mark to contend with here but he could still be ahead of the handicapper and he remains capable of better.

14:05 – Global Famenglory

Global Famenglory shaped well when runner-up on her return from 11 months off at Huntingdon in January, going down by half a length and pulling eight lengths clear of the third in a slowly-run handicap hurdle that developed into a sprint. She has been given plenty of time to get over that effort and sets the standard based on that form, so she is the one to beat.

14:40 – Mucho Mas

Mucho Mas has improved since stepping up in trip to around three miles and should give a good account as he bids to complete the hat-trick. He got off the mark over fences at Lingfield in December and then produced a better effort to defy a 5 lb higher mark on his return from 11 weeks off at Sandown last month, finding extra when challenged on the run-in. He remains capable of better as a staying chaser.

15:15 – Itso Fury

Jonjo O’Neill has a good recent record in this event – he’s won three of the last five runnings – and he has an interesting contender this time around in Itso Fury. Itso Fury, a winner on his first couple of starts over hurdles, ran well when runner-up behind a well-treated rival on his handicap debut at Taunton in November and then offered some encouragement on his first try at around three miles at Ascot in February on his return from a 12-week break. The tongue tie that was left off at Ascot is refitted here and Itso Fury, who should be sharper for that outing, looks capable of better as a staying hurdler.

15:50 – Domaine de l’Isle

Domaine de l’Isle had been tumbling down the weights but, with the blinkers refitted, he took advantage of that falling mark at Chepstow a couple of weeks ago, just needing to be kept up to his work to register a seven-and-a-half-length success. That was a weak affair, but a 3 lb rise in the weights shouldn’t prevent another bold bid if he’s in similar heart here.

16:25 – Marty Time

Marty Time showed more than previously when third on his handicap debut at Leicester in February and he took another step forward to get off the mark at Hexham 11 days ago. Marty Time still had six lengths to spare at the line, despite being eased down close home, so a 6 lb higher mark might not be enough to stop him following up, particularly with this step up in trip promising to unlock further improvement.

17:00 – Croagh Patrick

Croagh Patrick hasn’t won since registering back-to-back successes at Hexham and Carlisle at the end of last season, but he has produced some creditable placed efforts this term, including when runner-up at Carlisle last time. Croagh Patrick was unable to make it successive victories in the Go North Monet’s Garden Series Final Handicap Chase, but he ran well in second behind a rival who had fallen a long way in the weights and he ought to give another good account off the same mark.
